    Link: George Lucas discusses online content distribution with Steve Jobs
    Description:: George Lucas has apparently decided to make a gradual exit from the film business and instead is looking to focus on creating television and downloadable “on-demand” programming.

    Apparently Lucas has met with both Steve Jobs and John Lasseter and discussed the future of visual media. Lucas’ Star Wars: The Clone Wars, Vol.1 and 2 are already available on the iTunes store. Perhaps this is a sign of things to come.

    I recalll hear about a possible Start TV show....between Episode 3 and 4....would be cool if Lucas and Jobs worked on a deal to get it on iTMS, same day as it went on air, or even before it!

    I remember last year George Lucas talking about online movie distrubution. (Here's a link)

    Lucas has always been at the cutting edge of technology. Besides THX and ILM, he was one of the first to push for digital editing, which is now almost universal. And Pixar originated as a Lucas company, so Steve Jobs and George Lucas have done business before.
